Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 Available Today to MSDN Subscribers


One of the many benefits of being an MSDN Subscriber is early (and sometimes exclusive) access to early bits. Today the long awaited beta of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Fx 4 will appear on the MSDN Subscribers site. It’s not there yet but it will appear later on today. Keeping an eye on Twitter is usually a good way to see when it hits 🙂

Later in the week (probably Wednesday) updated documentation will be released on the Visual Studio 2010 homepage.

We’re very keen for you to download, install and evaluate Visual Studio 2010. Most importantly we really need your feedback so we can improve it.

For those of you who’ve been soldiering on with the PDC CTP VM, I’m sure this will come as a welcome relief.

Oh, and it should work just fine on Windows 7 RC.
